    Is this software downgrade only for affected phones rather than the whole of the note 7 range?

    From what I've read, it's only going to affected phones.

    If they try to reduce a perfectly good 3500 mAh battery to 2100 mAh, there will be a MUTINY of loyal Samsung customers.

    Yeah... I turned off all of the auto updating on mine... If I get that update I'm going to be pissed.

    It's affected unsafe phones only, replaced safe phones won't get this update.

    I believe what you did is likely just apps updating and has nothing to do with OTA updates.

    I had this update today, turned battery indicator green, and it still charges to 100%. As it's supposed to do for the safe N7s.

    I believe it's a pushed mandatory update, so probably only way to avoid it is to keep the phone offline. Because once it's triggered, seems it's either update now or later, no other option.
